The thought of Ancient Egypt for many of us conjures up images of powerful kings and queens, breathtaking buildings, tombs and pyramids, Gods and ancient treasures. All of these things are the beginnings to those adventure stories, movies and games we so love to explore – the romanticism captures our imaginations when they are fiction, the very fact that these things actually existed only adds to the appeal that is Ancient Egypt.

Not only are there numerous books and movies built on the back of Ancient Egypt, the gambling industry has also ventured into the depths of the desert with a hugely popular game (with an Egyptian theme) being ‘Book of Dead’ provided by Play ‘n Go.

Book of Dead Overview

The ‘Book of Dead’ slots game is centered around the adventures of Rich Wilde (in later games he is joined by his daughter Kat.) When you first see Rich Wilde it’s hard not to notice the similarities between him and Indiana Jones (Kat is rather like Lara Croft of Tomb Raider fame) Rich even sports a fedora and whip.

The game whisks you away to the mythical underworld of Ancient Egypt, stepping into the light after encountering Osiris and Anubis – The game itself is quite similar to Book of Ra Deluxe (Novomatic) although ‘Book of Dead’ has superior graphics and animations throughout.

The gaming experience is better too and looks just as good no matter what hardware you are using. No wonder it is one of the most popular online slots around with online sites like Fruity King offering new players 20 free spins as part of their welcome bonus as well as becoming the flagship title for its developer Pay ‘n Go.
